Core Word activities

We have been busy coming up with some ideas for you for how you can use your AAC system in everyday activities, focusing in particular on using core words. These are the words that we use most often in our daily lives. We have lots of examples for a range of systems in the documents below. We will be adding more to this page every day. 

Remember, you don’t need to find every word you are saying on the communication system, just focus on the key words. These are the most important words. You can still speak a ‘full’ sentence out loud, while pointing to symbols for the key words.

So you might say ‘I like it’, but just point to/press the ‘like’ symbol, until you feel confident to join 2 or 3 symbols together.
